About Little Island Comics

Little Island Comics was the first comic book store for kids in the whole world!

Unfortunately, due to our entire city block being torn down by a condo developer, Little Island Comics closed up shop on December 30th, 2016. Open for more than five years, Little Island Comics served thousands of enthusiastic young readers, grateful parents, and cool aunts and uncles looking for the perfect gift.

If you're looking to continue buying kids comics and graphic novels and picture books from an independent retailer in Toronto, please consider shopping at Page & Panel: The TCAF Shop, 789 Yonge Street, as it has a marvelous selection of books for young people. Our big-brother store, The Beguiling Books & Art, is now located at 319 College Street. Beguiling Library Services, and the former staff of Little Island Comics, can be reached at mail@beguilinglibraryservices.com.

We're very proud of all we were able to accomplish, and we greatly appreciate everyone who shopped with us, hosted or attended an event at our shop, or generally just made the store a great place to be.

Sincerely,

The Staff of Little Island Comics
